Welcome to Teaser Tuesday 2018!
After our usual January blogging hiatus we’re now back for another year of bookish goodness, and I can’t wait to share more snippets from new, past and upcoming releases from me and good author buddies.
First, a gigantic thank you to everyone who has read The Country Girl. The response has been phenomenal. I can’t tell you how amazing it has been to read your emails and comments on social media. It seems Tash and Patrick’s story has touched a lot of people. I even had a reader email me about one of Pa’s gardening tips. Pa would be THRILLED by that!
Second, a heads-up about the next few months. I’m moving house soon (and city – hello, beautiful Newcastle!) and though we’ve done it many, many times before there’s always a degree of chaos. That means I might not be able to respond to comments here and on social media as quickly as I’d like, but I’ll do my best.
Third, watch this space for news about my coming releases. I can’t reveal anything right now but there are some exciting things happening. As soon as I’m able to share details I will.
Right, on to our Teaser Tuesday. I’m torn between teasing you with a snippet from a work-in-progress because it’s on my mind and I’m excited about it, or another taste of The Country Girl. I think it’ll have to be the latter. Mostly because my current work-in-progress is so messy I fear it’s in no fit state for sharing. Better to save that for later.
So here’s a few paragraphs about Patrick from Tash’s point of view. The man might be sexy, but that doesn’t mean she trusts him.
Patrick grinned. Tash wished he hadn’t. She preferred him bad-tempered. Grinning showed off his dark-haired handsomeness, sparkling blue eyes and straight teeth. And the sod hadn’t shaved today, leaving his jaw sexily stubble-flecked. Worse, he was wearing a pair of jeans that clung to his thighs and showed off his long legs. As for the rolled-up sleeves of his shirt, on Pa it looked agricultural and competent. Patrick made it both those things, and hot.
She didn’t trust any of it. Smiling and looking sexy was one of those things that beautiful people did when they were determined to get their own way and were being thwarted.
